I bought a pair of these about 5-6 months ago, but have worn them maybe 20-30 times at varying lengths (like 2 hours to even 12 hours). I got them after winter, so I haven't had the chance to wear them day in day out yet, but I'm definitely looking forward to using them in Autumn and Winter.
Anyway, back to my question. In terms of the wearing in of the boot, about how long should I expect it to be uncomfortable for? I would have thought after 20-30 wears it would start to soften up a bit, however the inner sole (or lack of inner sole) is still very hard and after extended wear, it starts to hurt my feet. That's usually the first place that starts hurting, and then after even longer periods of wearing them other areas of my feet start to feel pain in the places where the leather still rubs against my foot, especially the bottom of my heel.
I'm pretty sure I didn't get the wrong size as it fit me quite well when I bought it and it never gives me blisters. Just a bit of pain after extended wear.
So I'm just wondering if it's common to have to wait even longer than 20-30 wears for it to become more comfortable and soften up. I just really hope I didn't get a size too small (which would suck).
Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask this question!
